6/10/2017

Capo 2

        A
Well, I spend all day sittin' in the shade waitin' in my pickup truck
   A
In not too long, an old man drives by, he stops to see what's up
  D
I had to pull on over and give my eyes a break
         A
You're a busy man, nothin' to see here so we send him on his way
  E
I see his taillights fadin' and I grab my glass of tea
D                                             A 
Truth is, my name's Roy Johnson, coyote is my trade

    A
Not five minutes later, a mesquite bush starts shakin' like it was afraid
D                                                               A 
Fifteen men, women, and children jumped in the back of my Chevrolet
         E
Saw them tremblin' in my rearview mirror through my aviator shades
D                                               A
Said, "me, I'm old Roy Johnson and coyote is my trade."


Chorus:
       D 
'Cause you won't hear me comin' and you won't see my face
  A
I cut that trail a thousand times all without a trace
B
It's my line of business, no, it ain't a pretty thing
D                                    A
My name is Roy Johnson, coyote is my trade


I did what my mama told me, I got my four year degree
Now I'm an expert in logistics, I get product from A to B
No, I don't cut no corners, I've always got a plan
If you're lookin' for my services, amigo, I'm your man
I'll get you across that Rio, welcome to the USA
Dig that, say the name's Roy Johnson, coyote is my trade

Chorus

Well, I clearly remember like it was yesterday
I had that Chevy parked right under my usual spot o' shade
Not five minutes, a mesquite bush started shakin' like it was afraid
Fifteen Federales jumped out, they all knew my name

Chorus 2:
I guess they saw me comin', they saw my face
And I cut that trail a thousand times, guess I left a trace
It's my line of business and I ain't ashamed to say
"My name is Roy Johnson, coyote is my trade"

Outro
Now I spend all day sittin' in the shade
Waitin' in my pickup truck
